On August 10, 2017, the County released, for public review, a draft: CAP (August 2017 CAP); Supplemental Environmental Impact Report (SEIR); General Plan Amendment; Guidelines for Determining Significance for Climate Change that included a draft Greenhouse Gas Threshold of Significance; Report Format and Content Requirements for Climate Change; and Climate Action Plan Consistency Review Checklist. The August 2017 CAP identified GHG emissions, projections, and reduction targets for the county s unincorporated areas and County operations, and included reduction measures to ensure the County meets the State 2020 and 2030 targets. Based on comments received during the public review period, at informational meetings held throughout the region, and at Planning Commission meetings, staff has revised the August 2017 CAP to create a draft Final Climate Action Plan (draft Final CAP). The draft Final CAP includes 30 measures that address opportunities and constraints of the region s diverse landscape of open spaces, rural villages, and agricultural lands. It is structured to advance and build upon the 2011 GPU s vision and guiding principles to promote health, sustainability, environmental stewardship, vitality of the local economy, and individual character of existing communities. It also aligns with the County s existing plans and programs, such as the County s Strategic Energy Plan and the Strategic Plan to Reduce Waste.
RECOMMENDATION(S) PLANNING COMMISSION On January 18, 2018, the Planning Commission considered the draft Final Climate Action Plan and related information, and the draft Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Report. The Planning Commission recommended Option 3: Residential and Non-residential Development to the Board of Supervisors (Board), with one modification. The Planning Commission recommends the Board: 1. Adopt the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Findings, which include the certification and findings regarding significant effects of the project, the mitigation and monitoring program, the Statement of Overriding Considerations, and the recirculation statement prepared pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Sections 15088.5, 15090, 15091, 15093 and 15097, and certify the Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Report (Final SEIR).

FISCAL IMPACT There is no fiscal impact associated with these recommendations to adopt the draft Final Climate Action Plan (draft Final CAP) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2017-18. Proposed FY 2017-18 draft Final CAP implementation costs of 31.2 million are included in the FY 2017-18 Operational Plan in the participating departments for the programs that will contribute to the draft Final CAP ( 31.0 million for existing programs and 200,000 for new or expanded programs). There will be no change in net General Fund cost and no additional staff years in FY 2017-18. The Climate Action Plan Implementation Cost Report (Attachment H-1) estimates the County s future costs to implement the draft Final CAP through FY 2022-23. This timeframe represents the start-up phase of the plan. Certain draft Final CAP measures may be implemented that have costs beyond the scope of this initial cost analysis, including implementation of the Local Direct Investment Program and Renewable Energy Program. Of the total projected 236.4 million implementation cost beginning in FY 2017-18 through FY 2022-23, existing funded programs account for about 90 (approximately 212.1 million). New and expanded programs account for about 10 of the projected implementation cost (approximately 24.3 million) and of this amount, approximately 9.3 million can be funded by existing resources, while roughly 15.0 million represents currently unfunded activities. Potential funding sources for the identified unfunded activities include available prior year fund balance (one-time-only funding), General Purpose Revenue, grants, and if needed, future cost recovery fees, such as building permits. Further, based on the Climate Action Plan Implementation Cost Report, it is anticipated that there will be a staffing impact from implementation of the draft Final CAP, with a total of 12.00 new full-time equivalent (FTE) positions estimated, including 4.00 FTEs in FY 2018-19, 3.00 FTEs in FY 2019-20, 4.00 FTEs in FY 2020-21, and 1.00 FTE in FY 2021-22. Proposed new staffing, by department, is the addition of 9.00 FTEs in Planning Development Services, and 3.00 FTEs in the Air Pollution Control District through FY 2022-23.
OVERVIEW The Traffic Advisory Committee (TAC) meets every six weeks to review proposed additions, deletions, or changes to regulatory traffic control devices on County-maintained roads. The TAC tabled two items (Item 2-B and 2-C) for further review and recommends the Board of Supervisors act on four items from the December 8, 2017, meeting agenda. Item 2-A would establish an all-way stop at the intersection of Apple Street, La Presa Avenue, and Banock Street in Spring Valley. This item will provide a safety enhancement measure for pedestrians, bicyclists, and all other road users by providing a greater level of right-of-way assignment at the intersection. Properly posted stop controls at intersections reduce the number and severity of collisions by assuring that reasonable drivers enter the intersection at a low speed and have more time to take heed of the traffic situation. Item 2-D would establish a 40 MPH speed limit on Montecito Road in Ramona from 800 feet east of Alice Street to the end of County maintenance (near the Ramona Airport) and certify the speed limit for radar enforcement. Item 5-A would establish a 50 MPH speed limit on Mission Road in Fallbrook from 860 feet south of Pepper Tree Lane to Winter Haven Road and certify the speed limit for radar enforcement. Item 5-B would establish a 50 MPH speed limit on Mission Road in Fallbrook from Winter Haven Road to State Route 76 and certify the speed limit for radar enforcement. These items will establish a tool for speed enforcement that increases roadway safety and retains mobility. Properly posted speed limits provide feedback to safe and reasonable drivers to improve traffic safety and reduce the number and severity of collisions and allow for fair enforcement. The Board of Supervisors (Board) action on Items 2-D, 5-A, and 5-B will revise the San Diego County Code of Regulatory Ordinances (County Code) and requires two steps. On February 14, 2018, the Board will consider the TAC items. If the Board takes action on February 14, 2018, then on March 14, 2018, a second reading of Ordinances amending Sections 126.96.36.199. (Item 2-D), 72.169.52. (Item 5-A), and 72.169.53. (Item 5-B) of the County Code would be necessary to implement the Board s direction. RECOMMENDATION(S) TRAFFIC ADVISORY COMMITTEE District 2 Item 2-A. Apple Street at La Presa Avenue and Banock Street in Spring Valley (58th Edition Thomas Guide Page 1291-C2) - Establish an all-way stop intersection.
CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER 1. Find that the proposed project is exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) as specified under Section 15301 of the CEQA Guidelines because the proposed action involves minor alterations of existing public facilities relating to regulatory traffic control issues on County maintained roads, resulting in negligible or no expansion of use beyond that existing at the time of the Board action.
OVERVIEW On April 11, 2017 (3), the San Diego County Health Human Services Agency s Housing and Community Development Services received Board of Supervisors approval of the Fiscal Year 2017-18 Annual Funding Plan which included federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) project funding. The Department of Public Works was successful in obtaining CDBG funding for a sidewalk construction project in the unincorporated community of Ramona, along the north side of D Street at 13th Street. The D Street Sidewalk and Pedestrian Ramp Improvements Project will construct new sidewalk and a new pedestrian ramp that will provide a continuous walkway and will enhance pedestrian safety, accessibility, and walkability in an area that attracts many pedestrians. This is a request to establish appropriations, and approve the advertisement and subsequent award of a construction contract to the lowest responsive and responsible bidder. Construction is scheduled to begin in spring 2018 and be completed by summer 2018. The construction cost is estimated at 175,000 including contingency and the funding source is CDBG funds.
